The Globe Apartments, six stories of decaying brick and concrete, rises above San Francisco’s volatile Tenderloin district. The seedy former hotel, once a haven for the city’s down and out, now houses Vietnamese families striving to improve their lives. But P.I. Sharon McCone believes that someone from the Tenderloin’s shadowy underworld is determined to drive the newcomers out. The suspects range from the colorful to the dangerous: a poetry-loving drifter, a mean-spirited preacher, a flower seller with a deadly touch, an enterprising pornographer, and a developer who’d like nothing better than to unload his worst investment – the Globe Hotel. When All Souls is called upon the pattern of intimidation, resentment explodes into murder. As McCone takes up the refugees’ cause, she is drawn into the depths of the city’s most hated industry – and into the secrets of San Francisco’s buried past.

Seller did not reply to 2 emails and Barnes and Noble told me that I would have to wait a month before I could ask for a refund Ordered on Dec 28 2013 all the other books from other dealers arrived but not this guy's Getting no help from Barnes and Noble so if you want to spend your money and get nothing for it then go right ahead and order from this seller and get no help from barnes and noble either
